Autumn has really arrived here in the UK and I am loving all the changing colours of nature. So this week I was inspired to make an autumn leaves gift box. Emily Atherton has produced some beautiful dies for us to work with; each with a pretty nature theme.
Autumn-Gift-Box-1
Items I used
Sizzix Big Shot Plus Machine Only (White & Gray) (660020)
Sizzix Thinlits Plus Die Set 6PK - Timeless Love Gift Box (660833)
Scrapbooking papers / card stock
Glue

Cutting the box out is so simple as it is all one piece and doesn't require any glueing to hold it in place. I just used a little bit of glue to attach the leaf pieces.
Leaf-Gift-Box-2
I think this will be a great die to use for gift wrapping at Christmas. I might make some truffles for my neighbours in these gift boxes.
Autumn-Leaf-Gift-Box-3
What do you think? I like the geometric pattern in contrast to the soft leaves. I'm definitely cutting more of these out for my autumn mantel display!
